Better Cell Sorting:

  • High Speed

  • Sterile

  • Scalable

The High Speed, Sterile Cell Sorter

Cellular Highways is developing a new generation of automated high-throughput cell sorting instruments for research, diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Cellular Highways is a spin-out from, and backed by, TTP plc.

Powered by a new microfluidic cell sorter technology, our instruments will reduce the cost and complexity of cell sorting and achieve far higher throughput than existing platforms, thus making cell sorting accessible to every laboratory as well as enabling new diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

GMP Cell Sorting

GMP-compatible cell sorters and cartridges suitable for cell therapy production, coming soon.

News & Events



43 kHz sort envelope rate on a 1×0.25mm footprint, including actuator. The smallest high-speed cell sorter in the world.


Incorporating VACS and an inertial focusser, in a high-optical quality, low cost chip.

Sterile GMP Cartridge

An easy-to-use sterile single-use cartridge, allowing flexible swapping of input and output vessels, with optional GMP-compliance.


A fully automated benchtop sorter with high-precision, high-sensitivity fluorescence and scatter cytometry.
